Along with the classes that will take place during the academic year 2019-2020, training is complemented by activities on the Online Campus. Thus, MAED enables students to master this program while they continue with their professional activity. During the first week of the program, a calendar of all planned activities will be made available to students so they can deliver their activities on time.

As we encourage candidates from outside Spain to apply, it is possible to take the course 100% online if completing all the tasks that are asigned and planned in the academic calendar. Students are expected to complete one test per chapter as well as taking each module final exam in April 2020. Other tasks may be planned through the course.

The MAED is divided into 5 modules (4 thematic modules and one module for the master thesis). For each module, the Online Campus will include a list of readings, bibliographies and links to websites to complete their training and assess their knowledge. Once completed the sessions of module 1 to 4, students will be required to carry out a test of the knowledge acquired. The test will be submitted electronically.

Throughout the year, the Master's Academic Team is available to answer questions. It is also recommended to use the Discussion Forum of the Online Campus to solve any doubts on the content of each module.
